ROCKY MOUNT — Authorities are looking for a suspect in an armed robbery at a Family Dollar.

Officers responded to a reported robbery at Family Dollar’s 1257 Goldrock Road store at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, said Cpl. Ricky Jackson, public information officer for the Rocky Mount Police Department.

“The suspect entered the business, brandished a firearm and demanded that the clerk remove U.S. currency from the cash register,” Jackson said in a news release. “The suspect is described as a heavy-set Black male, wearing a Duke blue hoodie, an orange face mask and black sweatpants with white stripes.”

The robber left the area with money from the business before officers arrived, Jackson said.

“We are requesting the public’s assistance,” Jackson said.

Anyone with information can call the Rocky Mount Police Department at 252-972-1411 or Twin County Crime Stoppers at 252-977-1111. Tipsters can also text RMPOL and a message to 274637 or message police on the MyRMT mobile app.
